CONCORD — A panel of experts from local colleges, nonprofits and state agencies that support veterans will bring their expertise to a forum at Granite State College in Concord to help uncover an effective approach to serving our local veterans.
New Hampshire’s population of veterans is changing. A one-size-fits-all approach to serving this population won’t work. Rather, an approach that’s supported by the collaboration and expertise of those who are currently serving our local veterans is needed.
The forum, “Working Together to Strengthen NH’s Veteran Workforce,” takes place Monday, Dec. 11, from 9 to 11:30 a.m. at the college, located at 25 Hall St., Concord.
The event will take a look at the ways that veterans’ services, higher education and employers currently support veteran employment. It will also offer an opportunity to explore the issue of underemployment and how education and credentialing can combat this issue.
Among other esteemed guests at the forum, panel members include Pete Burdette, civilian assistant to the Secretary of the Army for the state; William Gaudreau, director of the New Hampshire Office of Veterans Services; Stephanie Higgs, of Military & Veterans Services at Easterseals; and Joe Hannon, military support specialist at Granite State College.
